Indoor Outdoor Living

with 8 comments

 

Mostly outdoors! I’m loving this new house by also Known as, it could serve as a commercial store if you wanted to use it like that, it’s that adaptable. I’m also longing for summer – as you can see by the windlight I’ve chosen – more snow is forecast for our part of the country… thumbs down 🙂

Today, I’m showcasing a number of products that will be coming up soon at the Illuminate Event on March 18th. Illuminate is the first monthly Home & Garden specific Event, there’s no fashion in it. It’s run by ULTRA Events and LTD, and there’s some really lovely products already. With the Easter festival happening soon, some of the designers are taking inspiration from that.

*~*~*

Here’s the Home & Garden products I’ve used today in detail:-

Illuminate Event – from March 18th Noon SLT

1. Funny Eggs by MAD MATCH – this is the joined set and they are LI 2 at the size I’ve used. They have a good resizer and also have individual eggs.
MAD MATCH is a “brand new brand” and a tiny new part of the SL® universe (100 % original mesh).

2. ACORN – gorgeous patchwork pouf sets by designer, Lulu, in natural and pastel colours 3 per set, LI 2 each. Also the Violin is ACORN, comes with and without hearts, LI 1 each.

3. BASIL
Beautiful work at low Land Impact from this designer.  Link will take you to the FB page.

Dahlia – Malta – Accent Table – Copper – LI 1
Dahlia – Malta – Peonies – Warm – LI 1
This is a beautiful set with gold, copper and silver versions of the furniture and Cool and Warm colours of peonies in vase

5. Shutter Field/Decor Junction – a well established collaboration. This is the Kincaid Set, with MM and MF versions plus the Floating Dock which I shoved rather unceremoniously into the stone surround! SF/DJ often produce beautifully animated MM versions of their products, not so many designers cover this market and it’s a pleasure not to have to alter the animations.
DJ / SF Floating Dock – LI 9 – Copy/Modify – contains male and female sits, dives (into the water), and a nice cuddles Menu.
DJ / SF Kincaid Set – LI 8 – with male and female sits, cuddles and activities Menus.

6. also Known as
The fabulous BarCode Villa!
The Barcode is built as a villa, but will work well as one or more stores as well. The houses has five sections, three fo them with upper floors, the two on the sides have roof terraces. The full footprint is 25*50 meters including the outdoor paving, which can be unlinked should you prefer to do that. Two versions of the house are included – one with an animated bathtub for use as a home – Land Impact will be 112 and one without if you’re using the BarCode Villa as a commercial property – Land Impact will 120. The Barcode has Kool doors, which can be configured by the owner.

Little Branch, currently at FaMESHed
Poplar Tree – beautiful 4-seasons gently animated tree. Pack includes fluffy grass, hills for summer and winter, a 2 LI version of the Poplar Tree, the higher LI version, animated Snakeweed for summer. I had the tree on the ‘spring’ setting and at that size it was LI 9.

Don’t Disturb!

with 7 comments

 

Sometimes it’s better to let sleeping dogs lie 🙂 Mum and pups are very comfortable on Granola.’s beautiful Waverly Cozy Bed. It’s early in the morning and only the Panda is awake to meditate. Maybe they’ve all been playing too much Mahjong.

A stunning bedset here and it’s matched up by Newchurch’s beautiful mid-century chair and pieces from 22769’s latest gacha for the Gacha Guardians Event.

*~*~*

Here’s the Home & Garden pieces I used in detail:-

Book Lovers Retreat

with 12 comments

 

I went to type Book Lover’s Treat first, and then laughed – because it is!  A real treat for those of us who like to curl up with a good novel or three. This is the “Book Lover’s Retreat” by Newchurch and it’s currently at the ON9 Event.

 

The entire set has 3 versions – the Retreat itself, a decorated Retreat and a Retreat with décor and foliage.  This makes it very easy to rez – just choose the one you want.  The decorated version has a Land Impact of 37 which includes everything you see in the picture and if you add the foliage, it’s a further 14 Land Impact which is not bad, considering what you get.

 

 

One of the great things about this set is the customisation that is possible.   You may resize and edit the retreat, and unlink and re-link pieces as needed, but please note the following as you edit this piece:-

1. Always keep an unedited copy, in case something goes wrong!
2. Close the blinds before resizing.
3. Reset all the scripts after resizing.
4. You may tint any of the parts to better fit your own colour schemes.
5. After resizing, you will likely need to adjust the positions of the animations.
6. You may remove any or all of the books, plants or other décor parts, or add new ones.

 

Brilliant!  I want one of these in real life with a “Don’t Disturb for at least a Day upon pain of Death” notice firmly nailed to the boards, although I doubt if anyone would read it 🙂

 

 

Cheers, m’dears…  and remember to don your sun tan cream 🙂

 

Sakura Wedding

with 2 comments

 

Many Japanese weddings are held during the Spring and Fall. The traditional Shinto ceremony honours the kami, the spirits inherent in the natural world. After a purification ceremony using a special branch called the harai-gushi, the priest calls to the gods to bless the couple. The ceremony ends with a ritual sharing of sake from three flat cups stacked on top of one another. Popularly called san-san-kudo, this ritual can be performed any number of ways, depending on family customs. The groom may lead, taking three sips from the first cup, followed by the bride, who also takes three sips from the first cup. Then they move on to the second and third cups. The sake is then offered to the couple’s families.

Newchurch‘s elegant “Shen Wedding Tea Ceremony Set” reminded me of traditional Japanese weddings. However, that’s about the only traditional thing in this wedding! The Red Pandas are tying the knot with the Egret officiating. It’s a large picture so you can see everything so do check that out (click on it), the lacquer work on the furniture set is absolutely beautiful.

You don’t have to be mad… but it helps!

with 18 comments

 

Alice and the Mad Hatter have decided to break out the best china and have a tea party in the garden. Now prospective party goers don’t have to be mad… but it helps!  It’s a lovely sunny day and even the book trees have blossomed, with books of course.

There’s a game of chess happening but it’s not conventional rules.  The Dormouse is awake for once but he’s playing the rabbit who famously leaves early because he’s got somewhere else to go.  Phoenix Junior is flummoxed by the whole thing! He’s only interested in cake really.

 

Meanwhile, at the Cheshire Cat end of the table, the lazy daisy has at last woken up, which is just as well since his cuppa is going cold!  The cat’s got his paw on the situation 🙂

 

Alice is doing her best to look cute, while the Mad Hatter contemplates his half a cup of tea.  Maybe the Rainbow Phoenix has done a trick on it!

Too much cake!

with 4 comments

 

Can you ever have too much cake?  Well, you have to give it a really good go!  This is our second round of cakes and the dog is already collapsed and so is Arrchie. Can I manage any more?  While I’m contemplating another portion of blueberry cake, the goose is eyeing up the mooncakes 🙂

A beautiful set of spring/summertime furniture by ::Newchurch:: that I adore, called  “Spring Party Dining Set”. Everything is so detailed, even the napkin rings have little leaf shapes on them. I appreciate the attention to detail and the fact that you can texture change the chairs, table mats and runner. There’s also some great animations in this set, that add to the humour of a spring party.  Pick up a copy of this set at the ON9 Event.

22769 ~ [Bauwerk]‘s set for March Arcade is called “Colors of Spring gacha” and I’ve got most of it out here. Fine work indeed, and perfect for a garden or forest setting. Lots of extras apart from the Hideaway that can be used in gardens and porches or indoors. That’s a direct landmark to the vendor on Arcade.
